Langley students offer adults COVID advice and encouragement

Willoughby Elementary Grade 2 students wrote letters to adults at the one-year mark of the pandemic

A handwriting lesson for a Grade 2 class turned into an opportunity to send positive messages and words of wisdom to grown-ups as society marks the first anniversary of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Willoughby Elementary teacher Tracy Dionne shared the student letters which came complete with original art.

“The idea for the letters came from me coming up with a lesson for writing with a purpose and making writing meaningful,” Dionne said. “The purpose of this assignment was for the students to write a letter that would encourage adults to keep going with the pandemic as we are now around the one-year mark.”

The students were excited about the assignment to send a message to adults.

“My hope for the letters is that it will bring connection and hope from the eyes of our young children,” she said. “The students brainstormed ideas and discussed how can we encourage adults to keep going and stay strong during these challenging times.”

(The students letters are presented as they wrote them.)
